Snazzy Americana Music
Americana Music (a-mer-i-KAN-a MYOO-zik), n. That's what you'll find here at Snazzy's Americana Music Mercantile. Americana music is American roots music, from acappella to bluegrass to zydeco. It's folk, it's rock'n'roll, it's blues, it's the weird edge of country. Americana is Hawaiian slack key, rockabilly, and country swing. Sometimes it's a mixture of all of this, other times its something your niece from Austin just made up.
